my story “Salvage” has found a home

I learned over the weekend that my (mildly) speculative fiction story “Salvage” has been accepted for a new anthology that will appear sometime around the end of the summer.

I had responded to a Facebook call specific to the anthology, and since it’s a new publication, it isn’t listed in any of my usual resources (Duotrope, Poets & Writers), I pretty much submitted blindly. The editor responded a week later, apologizing for having taken so long. He wanted to know if I would be up for some minor edits, and if so, he wanted to include my story in the anthology. And so it will happen. (Haven’t seen the proposed edits yet.)

I don’t think the anthology has a name so far, but it is being published by the House Publishing House. “House” is the surname of the editor/publisher.

“Salvage” is an interesting story, or the story behind the story is. I’ve been slowly reading through my old journals, looking for ancient gems I’d forgotten about. Mostly I haven’t found any, but the basic story for “Salvage” was one that I did find. It was in one of my earliest journals. I’m not sure why I didn’t try writing it then, but I’m glad I rediscovered it.

The anthology will come out sometime around the end of the summer. I’ll make some noise about it then too.

    Hey, can you send it my way or do I have to wait for the end of summer?
